Known for serving up some seriously good cocktails with a party atmosphere, Be At One Birmingham has mixed up its drinks with some incredible new additions that you need to try out.
Last week we headed down to the popular cocktail bar in Piccadilly Arcade to check out its brand new cocktails, try our hand at shaking up our very own drinks and take part in the Ultimate Cocktail Challenge.
We took a seat in the back bar, which is the perfect setting for grabbing a couple of drinks – you’ve got over 100 to choose from – and prepared ourselves for an evening of learning to become Birmingham’s latest cocktail connoisseurs as we fully embraced the bars #LifeIsWhatYouMixIt ethos.
Never ones to say no to mixing up our own concoctions, we created a number of new drinks from ‘The Play List‘ menu including rum-based Jet Pilot, gin-based Blue Steel and, because one of Team Style was driving, the non-alcoholic Forest Fire.
After shaking up a storm behind the bar, we geared ourselves up to take part in Be At One‘s Ultimate Cocktail Challenge, where we battled it out against other teams in games that saw us create our own signature drink which was judged by a Be At One master – we got top marks by the way; a music quiz, seeing just how long one of us could shake a mixer for to claim a prize and bartenders matching us up with the perfect cocktail based around our likes and dislikes.
And, although team Quiztina Aguilera – yes, that was our team name – may not have taken the top spot when the games came to a close, we can confirm that Be At One certainly knows how to brighten up a rather cold Tuesday evening…even if we were all left feeling a little fragile the next morning. Head down to Piccadilly Arcade and try it out for yourself!
